    Read this again. He obviously knows what he is talking about.

    "The biggest difference between Hodnett and Carlock when compared to the Best of the West, Long Range Precision and any other of these similar "dial and kill" idiots is that humidity, barometric pressure, tempature, altitude and more than anything wind play a huge issue with every shot. The concept of using dials or reticles in relation to a distance is absurd. As the consistancy over several hours of 1000 feet of altitude can change a shot at 1000 yards enough to miss by 30 inches."

    Now do you use mathematical calculations for every shot or do you fall into the "dial and kill idiots" category. I believe I know the answer based on your previous posts.

    How do you know what the wind is doing 1000yds away? How do you know what it's doing along the way to 1000yds?

    Sounds like a bit of guessing? Fine for target shooting. All you get is a bad score if you guess wrong.

    When I was in college, I had to get thru 2 semesters of calculus. Now I just want to hunt and not have to do "mathmatical calculations".

    I appreciate the advice, everyone, but you're all wasting your time.

    By the way, I really like the "Dial & Kill" slogan. It would look good on a Team 3 Ball t-shirt. I'll leave out the idiot part though.

    Guys, I think we can safely say that not everybody is going to see this issue in the same way. How about we just let it go, and find some common ground. Then we will see how long this thread can do dormant before being dragged up again.
